Mrs. Smith

I started teaching at Holy Childhood in 2015. Before that, I spent my teaching career at St. Peter and Paul in Collinsville,  which is my home town. My husband, Allen, and I have been married for 25 years and we have three children. We have two grown sons, Daniel and Alex, and our daughter, Julia, is still in high school.

The decision to change jobs and become part of the Holy Childhood family was one of the best decisions I ever made! This school is truly a special place!
